secret staff, chefs and curators, from martha washington to michelle obama. season 1 begins tonight at 9:00 eastern and pacific. on c-span, c-span radio and c-span.org. and you can also watch it again tonight at midnight. on this presidents' day, we talk about historian doug brinkley on the second terms of presidents. >> douglas brinkley, here is congressional quarterlies weekly and they have a graphic here. second terms tend to be more difficult. why is that? give us the history. >> well, i don't know if i totally believe that. and i know it's so popular right now that i hate to be the contrarian where we're saying second terms are a curse and that they're so much more difficult. i think any president would rather be in their second term than having to be in a first term with a huge election looming. so i think you get a lot of relief when you're president in the second term that you don't have to run again. also, there's a notion there are scandals that occur in the second term on nixon and watergate and iran-contra and lewinsky problems, all ones people raise. what they miss, is what
if washington can't avert the sequester? >>> president obama is tailoring his sales pitch today by talking to al sharpton and other minority radio hosts and yesterday by appearing on tv stations in states that will be hard hit by defense cuts. >> instead of us cutting education, instead of us kegt mental health programs, instead of us affecting military readiness and a whole range of other things that are really important to our security and our prosperity, we should be focused on programs we know don't work, waste in government, and some of these tax loophole that is we can close that frankly only benefit the well off and the well connected. >> in connecticut today vice president biden and parents of a 7-year-old sandy hook victim are tackling gun violence together. >> plus, a first fashion line. could a fragrance be next? jimmy kimmel sees opportunity knocking for the strug lingpost office. >> introducing a new fragrance by the u.s. postal service. manila. >> manila. >> smell like an envelope. go places. manila. manila. express mail your senses. hmm, paper. adhesive. manila by the u.s. postal
washington and we go through michelle obama. more from "the washington post 's" style section this morning. host: she sat down for interviews. you can see at circuits -- excerpts on a website. [video clip] >> i think to the extend this feels natural to me, i would never have thought being first lady would feel natural. i try to make it me. i try to bring michelle obama into this while respecting the tradition that is american's. host: first lady michelle obama. there's more on our website, c- span.org. jj in silver spring, maryland. caller: good morning. it can at times shoulder ignorance of other aspects of the policies. nancy reagan was in the former soviet union and was touring churches with lisa gorbachev -- raisa gorbachev. she made an effort to bring a focus on the lack of religious freedom in the former soviet union. it was united states policy at one time. it resulted in the deaths of hundreds of americans at wounded knee. the policy was to stamp out the ghost movement. that is a piece of american history a lot of people do not know about. he should have some knowledge about that.
. good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. president obama and congressional republicans remain worlds apart on a realistic solution to prevent billions of dollars in automatic cuts. the sequester from kicking in march 1st. right now the politics are trumping any movement towards compromise. joining me now for our daily fix chris calizza, msnbc contributor and managing of post politics.com, and washington post reporters laurie montgomery and nia malika henderson. chris, first to you. set the stage for us. there's no solution in sight. is the white house expecting it has the high road in terms of politics of it and that republicans will be on the defensive because i don't see any way they're bridging the gap. there is no outward ed that began is being bridged. i think the government sees the only way it could be bridged by agreeing with some tax increases, and they say, you know what, all these cuts, sure it's a meat clever approach, not a scalpel, but at least they're cuts, and it's not about tax increases. we kind of -- they believe that to maintain the core of who the republic
obama is trying to pin the blame for the last-minute change on congress. he has the stage here in washington all to himself. >> i'm hoping while they're back home, they're hearing it from their constituents so when they get back here, they're ready to do some work and we can avoid these automatic spending cuts. >> but congressmen back home may not be getting the earful the president is hoping for. while nearly a half a million want them to happen, less than 40% want to let it happen. >> not only should the sequester stand. many pundits say the sequester falls short. >> if the cuts kick in, that same poll shows more people would blame republicans in congress than the president. now some areas the budget will not affect. social security, medicare, medicaid, and food stamps. anne-marie, the projections say eventually half a point will be shaved off gdp because of these cuts. >> wow, it's going to be a tense few days. thank you, susan mcginnis in washington. >>> on the "cbs moneywatch," getting the dreamliner off the ground and the takeover. good morning. >> good morning. worries a

[a24]obama chicago-transition meantime, president obama took his agenda to his hometown of chicago. the president stressed the importance of growing the economy and creating more jobs. he also addressed gun violence -- saying common sense gun laws, combined with stronger families and more opportunity can help turn the tide. in the audience were the parents of hadiya pendleton -- the 15-year-old chicago girl killed just days after marching in the president's inaugural parade.

senator. chief congressial senator mike emanuel reports. >> as washington fights over scheduled spending cuts the obama administration launched a 100-city connecting community tour. beaverton, oregon, was the first stop on february 14. representatives of the white house, department of labor, epa, transportation, and hud were sent to promote federal aid in spending. oklahoma senator tom coburn is urging the administration to cap sell the tour when much is made about the impact of sequestration. in this letter sent thursday to the white house office of management and budget, he wrote it is somewhat surprising therefore for the white house to be headlining a 100 city government spending tour. >> we asked for how many people are going on the tour, what is it going to cost, what are the cities and why are we doing this? this is not for political means to exer bait the effects of the sequester. >> and coburn points out that beaverton have been adept at obtaining federal funds, receiving $2 million in grant and assistance since 2011. at the white house, the press secretary didn't have many deta

games are what washington is all b. president obama has proved himself very good to play this game. he has a strong hand right now. in the current situation with the $16 trillion in debt both republicans and democrat vs. plenty of blame. but it's kind of unusual in this particular case to have president obama complaining about the sequester, since bob woodward's book clearly pins the impetus for the sequester on the white house. the white house came up with this back before the election, because president obama really didn't want to have another big fight about the debt ceiling and everything and he wanted to give some sort of cuts to republicans in order to get past the election. and then he succeeded and here we are now where these cuts are about to take effect. we've kicked the can down the road a couple of times now, and now that he's securely reelected he really doesn't want to have these cuts go into effect. and he's desperate to find some other way of lessening the concerns of republicans who are very concerned about the exploding costs of the government. jon: if both sides agre

times -- above the fold in the washington times, a story about president obama's agenda, risky to red state democrats, immigration reform, climate change, increasing taxes, including gun control, all risky to red state democrats. above their head line, they have a picture of the senator that republicans are targeting, mark romneyin alaska -- mitt got 55% of the 2012 vote. in arkansas, mark pryor, mitt romney with 60%. in louisiana, and mary landrieu, mitt romney got 57%. in montana, max baucus, mitt romney with 55% of the vote. in north carolina, kay hagan up for reelection, mitt romney, about 51% of the vote. south dakota, tim johnson, mitt romney, 58% of the vote in 2012. these democrats, looking closely and hesitantly at president obama's agenda, on the issues he laid out in the state of the union address. also, a story about senator johanns, republican of nebraska, he has decided that he is not going to run for reelection in 2014. that is the story many papers have this morning. possibly the governor of that state could consider are wrong. senator mike johanns, not running in 2014
matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this big one. is barack obama going for it? is he suddenly becoming one of the great presidents in history? i'm not talking about mt. rushmore but perhaps the level right below it. i'm talking, to use his word, transformational. and is he using the country's historic demographic shift to do it? can he combine the new american power of hispanics and other minorities with the immediate aspirations of women to lob himself into the highest level of presidential greatness? can he bring on an era of democratic, even liberal dominance, for years to come? this is what his adversaries fear. they look at his working of the gun safety crusade, his positioning on immigration reform, his distancing himself from the triumphing over -- even triumphing over the hard often bizarre right wing of this country to do it. are they on to something? could this president be the president of our time? tonight we examine on president's day just where barack obama intends to go. where he intends to be once he, too, joins the pages of history and the lists of am
it to president obama to drive canada into the arms of china. i want to ask paul -- or in washington are skeptical about that. they say that they will send this oil to china, but will they get the pipeline built? what are you seeing on how likely this will be for a pipeline to the east coast or west coast anytime soon? >> there are substantial options. it is open. there are substantial opposition. it is not a vote-getter in british columbia where it needs to look at it. look at the rhetoric around the post keystone period. it was a little overheated duri. they tried to demonize environmental groups and stuff like that. there hasn't been a fundamental questioning, but there has been a sense that it was too hard. watching from afar, one of the things that stood out in the state of the union address tonight was what he said he read -- what he said. and we cannot get congressional action, we will take executive action. one of the actions he can take is reject the keystone pipeline. that would allow him to -- that is something that -- [talking over each other] >> it was really going to be on the broade
saying spending is the problem and they won't support any new tax hikes. >> reporter: president obama called in police and firefighters to help talk republicans out of letting the budget cuts take effect. the automatic cuts known in washington as the sequester kick in march 1st. they were designed to be so severe they'd force lawmakers to reach a brukt deal but they haven't yet and now the president is pushing a short-term fix to allow more time to reach a compromise. >> there's a smarter way to do this, to reduce our deficits without harming our economy. but congress has to act. >> reporter: the white house wants a plan with smaller spending cuts and more tax revg news. republicans say the government is already too bloated and higher taxes should not be part of this equation. budget expert isabelle says the automatic cuts will hurt the economy,'ve though most government agencies should be able to weather them. >> most organizations can manage a cut of 5%, 7% in their budget without long-term harm. i don't mean it won't be painful. it will be. >> reporter: allen simpson and erskine bo
of "the washington times" this morning. "gop is resisting obama rusher on tax increase." host: that is the front-page lead,, and at the end of the story is this. "the senate next week will consider competing democratic and republican proposals to stop the automatic cuts. the democratic plan would institute a 30% minimum tax rate on incomes over $1 million, cut farm subsidies and institute military cuts delayed until most us troops have returned from afghanistan. neither plan is expected to win the 60 votes needed to overcome a filibuster. instead, attention will shift to the next deadline, arch 27, when financing for the government runs out. the house bill would retain financing at pre-sequester levels, one $.043 trillion -- $ 1.0 43 trillion. senate democratic leaders have yet to decide whether they will go along or force another showdown on the automatic cuts with the government shutdown in the balance. but aides warned they will only do that if public opinion shifts overwhelmingly to their side. so far they say the public may say it sides with democrats, but there is little

that stance on the horizon in washington. the exciting new trade negotiation that president obama announced last week between the united states and the european union will create the world's biggest bilateral deal with it comes to fruition, a trans- atlantic partnership that will match the scope and ambition of our trans-pacific partnership talks. but our work is far from over. seven of the 10 fastest-growing countries are on the african continent. and china understanding that, is already investing more than we do there. four of the five biggest oil and gas natural discoveries happened off the coast of mozambique last year. developing economies are the epicenters of brokers and their open for business. and the united states needs to be at that table it. if we want a new list of assistance graduates, countries that used to receive aid from us, we cannot shy away from telling this story to the american people, to your members of congress, and to the world. let me emphasize, jobs and trade are not the whole story and nor should they be. the good work of the state department and usaid is measur

. look at the front page of "usa today." we'll start there. new polling is showing that president obama has a strong lead over congressional republicans on a host of big issues playing out right now in washington. that's according to the you in noons from "usa today" and pew research center. 45% of those polled say they support the president's approach to cutting the federal deficit. 38% support republicans, even a majority of republican voters endorse tax hikes as well as spending cuts. on gun reform, the president's approach polls six points higher than that of the gop. the poll also finds less than one-third of americans would blame the president if the sequester cuts kick in. nearly half of all americans would blame republicans. and on immigration, half of those polled say the president is taking the right approach. 33% endorse how republicans are tackling the issue. >> so james, if i'm still congressman in northwest florida and somebody hands me this and says, you're in trouble. i'm in trouble. i may get 79% instead of 80% of the vote, but that's what's running the republican brand

about showing once again they're willing to fight obama? >> that's a component of it. i think zachary's exactly right. you also didn't see the markets freak out over the fiscal cliff because we've sort of stopped believing the crying wolf of washington politicians and a sense of what -- if you look at the fiscal cliff eastbound if there were some deal being worked out which there isn't that boehner would have a hard time getting the votes for anything. barely got the votes for a sort of symbolic sequester replacement plan around the time of the fiscal cliff deal and so i think that especially having in their perception caved on the fiscal cliff and then having put off the debt ceiling, the republicans really feel like this is something they have to stand their ground on. >> chris, karl rove superpac has an ad out of bom's mess. let me play it and get your reaction to this. >> a bad idea. are you willing to see a bunch of first responders lose their job. teachers laid off. air traffic controllers and airport security. this is hardship on a lot of people. scene zone yours. middle class
journal" speaker boehner says most americans are just hearing about this washington creation for the first time, the sequester. what they might not realize from about obama's statements it is a product of the president's own failed leadership. tucker carlson, editor, daily caller. alan colmes, host of the "alan colmes radio show". both are fox news contributors and both are here to debate this. i think if you closed your eyes yesterday you probably would have heard two things. millionaires and billionaires. it is their fault and republicans are in the way. it is their fault as well. tucker, what do you hear? >> well i heard if only the rich would pay their fair share and republicans would stop standing up for hedge fund managers that, you know, the first-responders could get paid. i mean i saw a display of profound demagoguery and i saw a guy who is not at all interested in making a deal. i will say obama's a pretty skillful negotiator. the point of the sequester to convince americans that every federal employee is absolutely necessary. if you cut any part of the federal budget you will wa
they sit down and look at both sides? >> both sides say nothing happened. this is washington today. both sides don't really want to budget. >> i think obama, i think basically the republicans have a set of internal politics where they think for their internal purposes, mitch mcconnell's purposes in kentucky doesn't make sense for them to make a deal and president obama is looking at the broader politics. he thinks he can win again. >> you look at the numbers. the polls are on the president's side. the president understands if he doesn't get a deal and you have these massive cuts, you've got an economy that's upside down right now, i don't think he wants to take that risk, does he? >> mika was talking about fake deadlines. the economy's not going to collapse on march 2nd. we went over the fiscal cliff and nothing happened. certainly the american people don't buy the idea that some massive catastrophe will strike. if you've been ignoring the entire fiscal cliff conversation, you kind of won because you didn't miss anything. and i think the public thinks that's what's going on too. >> and b
